. secretary of transportation ray lahood announcing he's stepping down. he's the only republican in the obama cabinet and at least the sixth member to exit as president obama starts the second term. not clear where lahood is headed or what he'll do next. he does say he'll stay until the senate confirms his replacement. >>> this story fascinates me. for years this -- look at that map. nothing on it. this is all we knew of north korea's roads and cities. not much. just a blank canvas. but then the google chairman eric schmidt visited the country. now we have this. with the help of citizen mapmakers on the ground, one of the most isolated countries in the world has been mapped out. now, eric schmidt, after he took this visit, says that this timing is just a coincidence. >>> well, a close call in australia, major flooding across the northeast is churning up sea foam. you got to see these pictures. it is blowing on shore. take a look at this. not snow, sea foam. in some areas that was nearly ten feet high. you see folks playing in it here. the foam is a result of algae blooms, believe it or not, c
